Wouldn't Dover-Rochester-Portsmouth NH work better?

Well according to Wikipedia the area in NH known as tri-cities is Dover-Rochester-Somersworth. Looking at a map Portsmouth is a bit further away, and Somersworth is in between Dover and Rochester creating a triangle.

Anyway I personally voted for the tri-cities in WA since I live in WA. I also think that the one in WA is one of the better cases of a true tri-cities. All three cities boarder one another separated by three rivers, Columbia, Snake, and Yakima rivers. There isn't one particular city that anchors the metro area.

It is amazing how overused “tri cities” is. I voted for Johnson City area because I live in Tennessee. I am sure everyone will vote for the one they are familiar with.

Tri-Cities is famous in Tennessee and Washington State. That is it. (The poll should include all three cities, not one). Tri-Cities WA is Kennewick, Richland, Pasco, and is approaching 300K, not what what is posted above. One of the fastest growing areas in the US.

If you read the first post you would see that I list all the cities out, I just felt it was unnecessary to list them all out in the poll. Also itís pretty clear that people think that Tri-Cities isnít just WA or TN.

No problem, grega94. Wasn't mad...just correcting the fact that the Tri is close to 300K MSA. However, when you google "Tri-Cities", you get either WA or TN. You are good!

Ok, thanks. I only did it by adding city proper population since some of these cities are not part of their own MSA such as the one in BC. Also the WA one is pretty unique in that the MSA is officially reffered to as Tri-Cities, most of the others are pretty famous enough with their own city name such as Albany and Raleigh.

#21 (Williamsburg, Yorktown, Jamestown) isn’t a thing. There is a “Colonial Triangle” marketed as a collection of tourist destinations, but they’re not cities. Williamsburg is an incorporated city, but Jamestown hasn’t existed as a town in over 300 years. Yorktown is a historic battlefield and a nebulous and ill-defined collection of subdivisions in central York County.
